    Insuring a bike while traveling options?

    I'm going on an overseas trip and will be taking my bike and wanted to see what options I have for insuring it for damage or loss mostly by the airlines. I know airlines will make me sign a waiver that the bike is not covered.

    I looked at travel insurance and bike specific travel insurance but the ones I found all have a limit on how much they'll pay out for the bike which is really quite low with limits like $1500 which is $3500 below what the bike is worth.

    Any ideas what options are out there to cover the bike would be appreciated.

    Have you checked Velosurance? I don't know if they will insure for overseas travel, but it's worth checking.
